David Halliday Art

American, b. 1958
David Halliday's photographs are about beauty, pure and simple. His primary subjects are carefully composed still lifes, portraits and landscapes which he shoots in black and white film with only natural light. He is a purist behind the lens, rarely manipulating his negatives in any way and a master in the darkroom. His work has an ethereal quality that's translated not only through the subject, but also by the warm colors and sepia tones he uses in his printing.

Five Fish (Color Food Still Life Photograph of Fish on Tabletop with Mint Green)
By David Halliday
Located in Hudson, NY
Formalist style color still life photograph of five sardine fish on a white marble tabletop with a mint green background "Five Fish", 2007 Archival pigment print, edition of 25 Image size: 11 x 14 inches 17 x 21 inches with light wood frame with non-glare glass and 8-ply white mat Excellent condition, ready to hang as is Halliday captures the beauty of a traditional still life with a contemporary spin. Here 5 fish lay on a table against a light green background. The print is part of an edition of 25, is currently framed in a light wood frame with non-glare glass and an 8-ply white mat. The artist's signature is located on the back and front. About the Artist: David Halliday's photographs are about beauty, pure and simple. His primary subjects are carefully composed still lifes, portraits and landscapes which he shoots in black and white film with only natural light. He is a purist behind the lens, rarely manipulating his negatives in any way, and a master in the darkroom. His work has an ethereal quality that's translated not only through the subject, but also by the warm colors and sepia tones he uses in his printing. More about the work: A master of light, David Halliday produces lush and elegant images that are both classical and modern. Celebrated for his ‘purist’ eye, he poetically captures the nude male body in a selection of sepia-toned prints from 1996. Rarely revealing the model's face, Halliday prefers to focus on the natural drape of limbs, soft folds of flawless skin, and curvature of the spine. Overall, a stunningly intimate portrayal of the male form done with elegance and charm.

Clam Shells (Still Life Photograph of Purple & White Shells with Drift Wood)
By David Halliday
Located in Hudson, NY
Still life photograph of purple and white clam shells on pale grey and beige background archival pigment print, made in 2007 by David Halliday 10 X 15 inches unframed Edition of 25 In this series, Halliday captures the beauty of 'the ordinary' in still lifes of various objects and vegetation arranged against simple backgrounds. This nautical themed still life of deep purple and white clam shells beside a piece of drift wood is set on a light grey table top against a cream colored wood wall. The subtle color palette extenuates the various textures and gentle shadows cast on the objects. About the artist: American, b. 1958, Glen Cove, NY, United States, based in Schodack Landing, NY, United States Elegant still lifes bathed in natural light, so masterfully composed one could forget that it is, in fact, a photograph – this is how we’ve come to recognize David Halliday’s work. The artist first gained recognition for his sepia toned silver gelatin prints of common place objects and food staples, emphasized by sublime balances of form, texture, and shadow one could liken to classical painting. In more recent years the artist began embracing his subject matter with modern pops of color in surreal arrangements; vegetables and fruits eccentrically coupled with fish nets and cutlery balanced on undefined tabletops, seeming to float in midair. Now the photographer is retracting his lens to encompass the studio itself as his subject. In a self-portrait of sorts, Halliday skillfully combines elements of his craft in a modest interior view. Halliday was one of the first artists Carrie Haddad began representing when she opened the gallery 27 years ago. Since then he has exhibited nationally and in Europe. He now lives and works in Schodack Landing by way of New Orleans and Nantucket.

Ceramic Pitcher (Still Life Photograph of Lemons, Olives, Zucchini, & Chestnuts)
By David Halliday
Located in Hudson, NY
Contemporary color still life photograph of a ceramic pitcher with assorted fruits and vegetables Archival pigment print, ed. of 25 15 x 19.5 inches unframed Signed and editioned, verso In this series, Halliday captures the beauty of everyday life with a contemporary still life image of various objects and vegetation arranged on a wooden plank. The imagery calls to mind a Baroque still life, highlighting the beauty and simplicity found in every day objects. Here a sienna colored ceramic pitcher is captured besides an arrangement of yellow lemons, curly green zucchini, black olives, and brown nuts. The pop of white from the napkin in addition to the stark black background accentuates the simplistic color and shapes of the fruits and vegetables. About the Artist: David Halliday's photographs are about beauty, pure and simple. His primary subjects are carefully composed still lifes, portraits and landscapes which he shoots in black and white film with only natural light. He is a purist behind the lens, rarely manipulating his negatives in any way, and a master in the darkroom.

Contemporary food still life photograph of bread with assorted vegetables on a wood table Archival pigment print, ed. 9 of 25 Image size: 11 x 14 inches 17 x 21 inches with dark wood frame with non-glare glass and 8-ply white mat Halliday captures the beauty of a traditional still life with a contemporary spin. Here three loaves of bread are balanced on one another, beside blueberries, stones, squash, tomatoes, and legumes against a black background. The entwined green legumes and the bread's rough surface provides intriguing texture, while the delicately positioned white stones and blueberries lend brilliant color and shape. The contemporary still life is placed against a solid black background. The print #9 a limited edition of 25, is currently framed in a dark wood frame with non-glare glass and an 8-ply white mat. The artist's signature is located on the back and front. About the Artist: David Halliday's photographs are about beauty, pure and simple.

Cherries (Contemporary Still Life Study of Red Cherries in Light Box)
By David Halliday
Located in Hudson, NY
11.25 x 11.25 inches unframed Archival pigment print edition of 12 Some of David Halliday's most engaging works are those from his Box Series in which he merges classical ideas about light and composition or still lifes with contemporary experiments of fresh color. In this series an empty cookie tin becomes a tiny studio for food objects. Halliday carefully styles his photographic subjects inside and, allowing only natural light to seep in through a circular window. The results feel less like still lifes and more like intimate portraits of human sustenance. In these photographs, the fleshy curves of a fig, the slick bodies of sardines, even the homeliest porcini mushrooms possess a degree of nobility, providing a refreshing contrast to the compulsive relationship we so often have with food, reminding us to slow down and savor with gratitude. In this particular image, the bright red Bing cherries with their bright green stems are piled high into a silver goblet, gently brushed with the natural diffused light, echoing techniques associated with a Vermeer painting! About the work: The Past Still Present: A master of light, New Orleans photographer David Halliday produces lush and elegant images that are both classical and modern. Using window...

Silver Road (Contemporary Archival Pigment Print Sepia Tone Landscape of Forest)
By David Halliday
Located in Hudson, NY
sepia toned archival pigment print, edition 2 of 25 Item size: 24 x 20 inches, 100% cotton rag paper Image size: 22 x 17 inches This modern, sepia toned landscape print was made by artist, David Halliday in 2000. The serene country landscape features a wooded path extending towards the horizon. Detailed branches and heavy brush blanket the forest ground while leaves provide shadow and depth to the composition. The print is unframed. About the work: Whether traveling to a foreign land, wandering through a neighborhood market to shop for food, or engaging in convivial conversation with a friend at his home,David Halliday is easily charmed, intrigued, excited, or amused by all that surrounds him. An artful documenter of life, Halliday uses his camera as a tool for recording the multitudinous special moments that capture his attention. Once in the darkroom, he editorializes his finds, subtly embellishing each image until it somehow evokes the sensation that led him to photograph a subject in the first place. With the exception of a series of platinum print portraits, Halliday produces all of hisphotographs as sepia toned silver gelatin prints. Both processes are highly trad-itional and, in requiring that the artist avoid the use of any color other than sepia,they stand in sharp contrast to splashier modes such as Cibachrome, Polaroid, or digitally produced Iris prints […]. For Halliday, the warm tones afforded by age-old processes reflect his desire to reclaim the past or cherish the present in the form of soft, tranquil, frozen...

Plaster Clouds (Still Life Photograph of Light Orange Wall with White Plaster)
By David Halliday
Located in Hudson, NY
Contemporary still life photograph of faint orange wall with white plaster patches archival pigment print, ed 2 of 10 22.25 x 40 inches unframed 28.75 x 46 inches in dark wood frame with non-glare glass In this series, Halliday captures the interiors of his home and studio. The photograph depicts a light orange painted wall with white plaster patches over a mantelpiece. The artist likens the patches to clouds hovering over a horizon. Light blue styrofoam resting in the foreground provides an elegant detail of color. This still life photograph is complimented with a dark wood frame with non-glare glass. About the artist: American, b. 1958, Glen Cove, NY, United States, based in Schodack Landing, NY, United States Elegant still lifes bathed in natural light, so masterfully composed one could forget that it is, in fact, a photograph – this is how we’ve come to recognize David Halliday’s work. The artist first gained recognition for his sepia toned silver gelatin prints of common place objects and food staples, emphasized by sublime balances of form, texture, and shadow one could liken to classical painting. In more recent years the artist began embracing his subject matter with modern pops of color in surreal arrangements; vegetables and fruits eccentrically coupled with fish nets and cutlery balanced on undefined tabletops, seeming to float in midair. Now the photographer is retracting his lens to encompass the studio itself as his subject. In a self-portrait of sorts, Halliday skillfully combines elements of his craft in a modest interior...

Plaster Clouds (Photograph of an Exposed Wall and Antique Mantle Piece)
By David Halliday
Located in Hudson, NY
Plaster Clouds, 2016 Archival pigment print 22 1/2 × 40 in; 57.2 × 101.6 cm Edition of 10 In this series, Halliday captures the interiors of his home and studio. The photograph depicts a plaster wall that has been patched, creating cloud like designs on this raw bit of painted wall over the mantle piece. Pops of a soft mint green of the pieces of insulation on the mantle compliment the overall color palette. The white and golden yellows blur the line between photography and abstract art.
